Gentle Sleep Workshop for Parents with Toddlers ( 1-Preschool)

Oct 3 @ 9:45 am - 12:00 pm


Hello there, are you and your family struggling to sleep? I know how difficult it’s been during the pandemic, there is now an opportunity to get back on track.

Having a good night’s sleep is as essential as a healthy diet and exercise, it’s not selfish to want a good’s nights sleep. Sleep is an essential part of your child’s mental and physical health. A good night’s sleep allows your child’s mind and body to rest and recover. Sleep deprivation causes many symptoms such as:

  • Irritability and behavioural difficulties.
  • Increase risk from infection and obesity,
  • Difficulties in learning and low motivation.
Do you feel that sleep training ( I call it relearning) may be distressing or too hard? There are gentle ways to help that don’t involve crying it out.

Join me for a two hour online interactive workshop ( with time for questions)  to help your child RELEARN how to sleep. During the live workshop, I will share:

  • Simple Sleep Science, tips to help their 24-hour Cycle, ( Circadium Rthymn), the role of melatonin.
  • Exploring the impact on sleep due to your child’s temperament.
  • How diet may affect their sleep?
  • How daytime home environment/ routine affects sleep?.
  • What to do if your child resists going to bed or sleep and night awakenings?.
  • Managing nightmares and night terrors
  • How to implement a consistent bedtime routine that can last throughout their development?.
  • Gentle approaches to help your child relearn how to fall asleep without help?.
  • How many naps your child should be having and how to tackle common nap issues?.
  • How to move from co-sleeping and cot to bed?
  • Discuss common traps parents fall into with sleep training ( relearning).

About Me

I am a parent and shared all the joys, up and downs from baby to adulthood. We survived all my mistakes to reach a place of compassion and deep connection. Combining motherhood with working hasn’t always been easy. However, the parents and children who let me into their lives during my 31 years in the NHS have been some of my greatest teachers. It was an honour and continues to be.

Up until two years ago, I worked in CAMHS ( In and outpatient Services)  with children and families with complex emotional and behavioural issues. In addition, I offered multi-agency consultation with Paediatricians, Social Workers, Health Visitors and Teachers. I am also a trained facilitator in two evidenced based parenting courses, the Incredible Years and the Solihull Approach. My workshops integrate all my life experiences. I aim to offer a holistic approach that integrates compassion focussed strategies with simple neuroscience and attachment theory.

 During the pandemic, I ‘ve reflected on many issues. For me, there has been a strong message about offering support, compassion and community.  This is a small offering, I look forward to sharing with you soon. With Love Catherine
